" World Peace starts with countries at peace
Countries start with states at peace
States start with cities
Cities start with communities
Communities start with families
Families start with love, love starts with friendship,
Friendship starts with a SMILE (so all you got to do is smile)."
--- Written in 2003 by Michelle S., Age 16 --- California
This whole saying came about after an offhand comment from my seventh grade teacher who said that Mother Teresa once said that peace begins with a smile. I expanded on that trying to explain what the effect of a smile is. I had originally written this during the War and my explanation went like this: We all have our different opinions on the war, but I know that if you ask anyone in the world the classic Miss America question, "If you had one wish what would you change in the world?" The majority answer would be WORLD PEACE. Why then do I not see any action about this? My feeling is that a smile sends off a positive vibe that other people feel. I really do believe that a smile can change the world and create world peace.
